Mate Rimac’s innovative Drivecoach system

 
11 October 2019
 
Electric vehicle technology is conquering the planet, with the global market for EVs set to hit $271 billion in 2019.
 
But in making these gains, discarding the ‘unsexy’ EV image has been vital - many prominent car manufacturers have made it their mission to show that, aside from reducing emissions, electric vehicles can also provide as enjoyable and exhilarating a ride as their petrol cousins.
 
And few have done more to promote this burgeoning industry than Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Croatian electric hypercar manufacturer Rimac Automobili, and producer of the world’s fastest electric car.
 
Mate’s work is never low profile, making the news this summer for designing the battery-powered E-Type Jaguar driven by Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex at the royal wedding, while football superstars Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas and Gerard Pique recently expressed their preference for electric motorbikes designed by the Croatian entrepreneur.
 
But behind the headlines lies an unerring attention to detail and a drive to innovate and promote e-vehicles as the ultimate mode of personal transport going forward.
 
Mate will join us in MOVE’s Auto Futures stream to discuss Rimac’s new ‘Drivecoach’ system, designed to enhance the driver’s abilities and optimise vehicle performance, and to tease out his vision for the future of the industry.
 
He joins a world-class lineup of over 300 C-level presenters from across the new mobility spectrum – join him this February 12th & 13th in London – register here .

MOVE 2019 Launches, Ready to Revolutionise Urban Mobility

 
04 Oct 2019
 
Coming to ExCeL, London UK on 12-13 February, MOVE is set to be the world’s most important urban mobility event – where visionaries and disruptive technology meet to drive the future of transport.
 
MOVE is a conference and exhibition all about changing the way the world moves – with 388 industry-leading speakers across all modes and disciplines of transport. The agenda is a comprehensive and cross-modal experience covering 9 key components of urban mobility: Auto Futures to Autonomous Vehicles, Business Models, Cycling & New Mobility, Energy & Charging, Infrastructure & Connectivity, Smart Cities, Tech Data & Innovation and Urban Supply Chain.
 
Big names in mobility such as Waymo, Daimler, NewMotion and What3Words have signed on to deliver keynote sessions, and the MOVE team are due to finalise the conference agenda in the next few weeks.
 
The MOVE exhibition will feature 120 technology disruptors and thought leaders from across the transport ecosystem, including BCG Consulting, KPMG, Microsoft, BestMile, Trafi and Waycare.
 
Waycare’s CEO Noam Maital calls MOVE “a rare opportunity to bring all stakeholders together to discuss transportation and mobility solutions – it’s a collaborative approach of Government, the private sector, and the community all working together.”
 
In recognition of the vital role of mobility policy and implementation at all levels of government, MOVE are offering a limited number of bursaries for public-sector employees from National, Regional and Local Governments. So far, the cites of Amsterdam, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Ghent, Helsinki, Rotterdam, Vantaa, Groningen and Kansas have signed up to attend, joined by representatives from over a dozen UK local authorities and municipalities.
 
Bob Bennett, Chief Innovation Officer of Kansas City, who will be speaking on MOVE’s Smart Cities stream, said: “I am thrilled to be joining with the city leaders, corporate teams and researchers who are helping define 21st Century Mobility. MOVE is a unique event where we will have the platform and time to really dig into the issues that will define where we are going as a society.”
 
MOVE will also feature a Start-Up Village bringing together the transport sector’s most innovative start-ups. The aim is to provide a unique environment for VCs looking for early stage opportunities as well as companies across government, automotive, logistics, energy, infrastructure and more to discover the newest technology and freshest ideas in transport.
 
“Smarter technology and renewable power sources have the ability transform transportation infrastructure, making it cleaner, more efficient and providing a better experience to users. The challenges in moving from what we have today to a better vision of the future are considerable [but] MOVE can make a real contribution to tackling these challenges,” added Colin Corbally, Partner & Head of Investment Strategy at Downing Corporate Finance.
 
Companies interested in joining the growing list of disruptors, visionaries and innovators with a presence at MOVE can contact Emma-Jane Dinan on +44 207 092 1045 or email emma-jane.dinan@terrapinn.com for details on remaining sponsorship and exhibition packages.
